We were all so pained to hear these news. Even though most of us have never physically met Rebbetzin Chave Hecht, we still feel a strong connection to her. She truly transcends the physical body and her legacy will surely live on after her passing through all her incredible descendants and the many projects they run. What a loss for our world. Hashem should comfort the family with the coming of Moshiach now!

Rebbetzin Hecht was a דוגמא of immense modesty.
She was also very honorable in showing deep respect for her husband’s family, the Hechts, being proud that she was a part of the family. For years she would organize a gathering for the yahrzeit of her mother-in-law, Mrs. Sarah Hecht (whose yahrzeit is coming up in this month), to give her honor as a special woman.
A loyal wife to her husband, Rabbi J.J. Hecht and a warm mother to her family.

Rebbetzin Hecht gave chayus to the Hayom Yom of today – with illuminating the world with the light of Torah and avoda through the many mitzvos and her fine character traits. Thank you, Rabbi and Rebbetzin Hecht for Camp Emunah.

I spent many summers in the most amazing camp, and was always welcomed with a warm smile by Rebbetzin Hecht. It was this camp that made me the person I am today and owe it all to her. Such sad news! May her neshama have an Aliyah and teach the greatest heights. She will be with us forever in our hearts.

I was Zoiche to be a camper in camp Emunah in the 70’s and feel so indebted to the Hecht’s for everything they did to give me the wonderful experience I had, and for being true role-models!! They helped shape who I am today!! I feel very grateful!!

Wishing strength and comfort for the family!!

Mishpachas Hecht.. How fortunate were we all that you shared your beautiful mother with all of us. She was a queen

A Great Matriarch…BDE

Our sincerest condolences to the extended Hecht family. My daughter was a camper and then a counselor at Tiny Tots Emunah in the late 1980’s. Rebbetzin Hecht always treated my daughter and the other campers and staff with the highest level of love, kindness, compassion, respect and derech. She was truly a royal Neshama and the impact and legacy she leaves behind will truly be emulated by all who knew her. May her Neshama rise among the Heavens and may she go from strength to strength. May her Neshama be an Aliyah.

I was a waitress and my sister a camper at Camp Emunah in the mid to late 50’s. Rabbi JJ Hecht recorded us singing and put us on his radio shows. Both Rabbi JJ Hecht and Rebbetzin Chave Hecht were an incredibly dynamic duo spreading Yiddishkeit in most amazing ways. May they each be meilitz yosher for their family and Klal Yisroel. Hamakom yenachem eschem bsoch sha’ar aveilei Tzion v’Yerushalayim.
